User Reviews

This film was definitely an inspiration to those women who have found themselves in the same situation.
16 July 2001 | by ValorianniSee all my reviews

This was an excellent film. Linda Hamilton and Jacqueline Bisset make a unique pair for the theme of this film. Linda Hamilton with her feet on the ground and yet her head held artfully and sensually high takes you on an incredibly romantic journey. Jacqueline Bisset, as the perfect teacher of sensuality, plays her role with poise fit for a queen as she directs Linda Hamilton on her road to her inner self and sexuality. Wonderful! Could watch it over and over!
